Dead Horse Shanty (Poor Old Man)

Poor old man came riding along

And we say so and we hope so

Poor old man came riding along

Poor old man


 

Poor old man your horse he must die

Poor old man your horse he must die

Well, thirty days have come and gone

Well, thirty days have come and gone

Now we are on a good month’s pay

I think I hear the old man say

So give them grog for the thirtieth day

So give them grog for the thirtieth day

So up aloft to the main yard arm

Cut him adrift it’ll do no harm
